Take away everything accomplished by the G.O.A.T. and what do we have with boxing today?

Who do you feel is Greater than the Greatest?

Some people (like me) would still argue that if it weren't for the layoff, a more primed Ali would've given Frazier all that he could handle in the first fight, agreed?

Though I wasn't yet born in his era of fighting, having studied tapes of Ali's fights, I wouldn't be upset if someone thought Ali was the best. He transcended the sport not only in his era but his presence is still being felt in the sport and the world today. Jot too many athletes outside of him, Jordan, and a few others can lay claim to that. But... Pep and Ray Robinson also deserve a mention as the GOAT

My boy pep!

Pep was smooth in the ring. I don't hear his name brought up that much but I first learned about him from old timers at the gym and I checked out some of his fights on youtube and read alot on him, plus listening to the guys at the gym stories about him. He deserves a nod as one of the best to ever lace up a pair of gloves
